    That's one interpretation of it. Some sources say that he believed there was an asset in the air but there actually wasn't.

    This case is essentially a foreign policy Zimmerman case where there's lots of noise and not much to clear it up.

    I'm going to do exactly what I did in that case: wait for the noise to clear rather than jumping to conclusions.

    You underestimate the historical damage she can do. She's not my hero, but I, unlike you, understand what she can do.

    And since when does the Israeli Prime Minister give us marching orders???
    We can't pick and choose when evil people do their evil things. If we have to send troops into Iran to deal with this nuclear threat, then so be it. I would rather pay more to solve the problem, than to let Iran launch WW3 on us.

    The point of having a nuke is to not use one. The use of one by any country will likely launch WW3. They are there only as a deterrent because of their destructive power. I'm sure you're aware of this.

    Also, if they send their army into Iran, who's going to protect Israel? Even if they left a small force, they would likely be overrun by the eager Arabs that surround them.

    What truth is that? The part where Obama and his administration told the American people that it was related to a video even after they knew it wasn't, or the part where they denied the sworn testimony of those in the hearing?

    The facts, as you like to call them, DO ruin a story, but it's Obama's story. Whether by deceit or a failure of intelligence (unlikely), neither is a good thing and appropriate action should be taken against those responsible.

    First, Obama is not going to lose, second, in the very unlikely case that he does, it will not be because of anything besides the economy. People have that as the single most important issue, and he has not addressed that effectively.

    Iran probably will not start WWIII, we can choose however not to police the world. The rest of the world will go on without us getting involved in every ****ing war out there.

    Has nothing to do with us starting a ground war with Iran.
